Can we get an update? How did it turn out for you?

Also, I've just read this entire thread and several people ask, but not one response to the question;

LME or DME? What did you use? The posted recipe just lists "Light Extract"

I'm heading to the LHBS soon to place my order...

I have two questions for all of you who brewed this beer:

1. What carbonation volume level do you shoot for?
2. What serving temperature do you find the beer best at?

TIA

i can't speak from experience on this recipe, but i feel like you would get similar results either way. it would depend on which on you prefer working with. personaly i like LME. but DME stores better, so i think it just kinda depends on what you like

Since I didn't get an answer I went with LME. Maybe I'm showing my lack of experience and indeed you could use LME or DME interchangeably.

Anyway, I bottled 5 gals today after 11-1/2 days in the primary. I primed it with 3oz corn sugar. (...and I remembered to close the valve in the bottling bucket this time so I didn't spill heavily sugared beer all over the floor!)
OG:1.046, SG at bottling:1.014
Color looked good and it smelled good!
Can't wait to try my second batch of beer!

HOW much extract did you use?
[there are a thousand threads on here debating the difference between liquid & dry. but like another said in response to your question- it is personal preference.]

Whatever you used, it was a bit too much. Your OG is about tenpoints higher than the recipe. A mild is to be low in alcohol, so the OP's OG ranged between 1.034 -- 1.037.
It wont be precisely the beer as intended, but yeah it will be beer. Brew another!! and the next time i'd suggest that you use a program like beersmith or hopville. Make sure you match og, ibu & color for your proposed recipe as compared to what's posted.

I rounded 4.89 up to 5 lbs LME. This might explain my OG coming in higher. Only my second batch ever so I'm still learning.
Just purchased beersmith by the way. Thanks for the help!

Ok, just opened my first bottle of Orfy's Mild Mannered Brown Ale after ten days. It's not great at this early stage, but it's already better than my Oak Butt Brown debacle. Carbonation level is nice, I'm happy with the color and clarity and aroma. The taste is 'extracty'. Will give it another week and try it again for comparison.

just finished brewing this, waiting for it to cool. First AG batch, and i don't have a cooler yet, so it's sitting in a tub full of cold water.

When I keg this, to get 1.8 volumes, what PSI should i set my CO2 to? Beersmith seems to be suggesting around 5, but that seems quite low?

Thanks for the recipe, and response!

it all depends on temp, what is your temp?

As wildwest450 would say "this carb table is nice"

Here's to Orfy!

Repeat customer here, brewed up 12ish gallons last night, didn't go perfectly, mashed a little low at 152 but for 90 mins, ended up at 1.040 so should get down pretty well. I ended up with 14ish gallons into the BK so I did a 90 minute boil but kept the additions at 45/15.

Last year I made 5 gallons and brought it to a Detroit Lions tailgate where it was a HUGE hit and went quickly. I love this beer and will make it every fall. A fantastic style, and a crowd pleaser no matter the crowd.
